SR: Who do you play?
Allison Janney: I play Dr. Bernice Deagan. She is the director of the Golden Quill National Spelling Bee. This is her world. This is what she lives for. She has been doing this for twenty years. She is as hard as nails. She means business and Jason’s character enters into her world and she wants him out. He’s ruining my life basically and everybody is looking at me to fix it. And I try and so it becomes my job to get him thrown out of this Spelling Bee.
